Bringing a group to HMNS Sugar Land? Explore science, nature and history in our interactive science labs which feature specimens, artifacts and laboratory equipment.

Each lab lasts one hour and accommodates up to 25 students. Labs cost range between $165 per lab and $200 (for Dissection Lab*) and include admission to the Museum’s Permanent Exhibit Halls.

Wildlife Labs:

  • Bite Your Tongue (September 24)
    Why are giraffe tongues black? Are frog tongues really on backwards? Answer these questions as we study this important and
    often overlooked organ.
  • Polyp-palooza! (October 22)
    Often confused for plants or rocks, coral beds are full of fascinating animals working together to support an incredible amount
    of lifeforms. Pay these polyps the attention they deserve in this wildlife lab.
  • Brr – It’s Cold in Here (December 17)
    How do arctic animals survive such extreme temperatures and snowy conditions that we Houstonians can barely imagine?
    Come to this class to find out!
  • Scat/Tracking (February 25)
    Get the scoop on poop and a knack for tracks as you study the evidence wildlife leaves behind.
  • One of These Things is Not Like the Other (March 24)
    Study characteristics of living things and sort them into their taxonomic groups; then, meet the animals you sorted!
  • Beetlemania (May 27)
    Adults know there are only 4 Beatles (6 if you count Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe), but did you know there are almost 400,000
